Transcontinental SEACOM Submarine Cable

The SEACOM submarine cable connects South and East Africa directly to Europe and to South Asia. SEACOM offers a complete solution where the proposed price includes collocation landing stations in Africa, India and Europe as well as the continuation to Nairobi and Johannesburg. SEACOM sells SDH transmission capacity (Synchronous Digital Hierarchy) on a ring structure linking South Africa, Mozambique, Madagascar, Tanzania and Kenya. So a second pair of fiber connects South Africa in Kenya. This cable was put into service on the Red Sea at the beginning of 2011.
